Bend, OR (March 7, 2017) — 12-year-old, Gray Leadbetter, Morganton, NC, is set to become one of the youngest drivers to train in a Global Rally Cross (GRC) Supercar Lites vehicle at FlatOut Sweden, in Uddevalla, Sweden, March 13-16. The exclusive training opportunity is sponsored by ProClip USA, an in-vehicle Mobile accessory and mounting solution distributor, and iOmounts, manufacturers of the most versatile universal mounting system for mobile devices.
Leadbetter, an experienced driver and racer, received an invitation to train at FlatOut Sweden from Patrik Sandell, a Red Bull GRC Supercar race winner and the owner of FlatOut, last summer after driving together a few times at a karting track and demonstrating her driving skills. Gray is an accomplished amateur national Kart racer with multiple podium finishes and a South American Karting Championship to her credit. Her goal is to race professionally in the Red Bull GRC Series when she turns fourteen (2019). As of today, this would make her the youngest female to race the GRC Championship. Along with racing karts, Gray regularly drives a Yamaha YXZ1000 Side by Side and a rally car style Ford Fiesta and is proficient driving a sequential shift.
Through the support of sponsors, ProClip USA and iOmounts, Gray will fly to Sweden next month to receive valuable one-on-one coaching from the champion rally driver at FlatOut in a full scale GRC Supercar Lites. She will have the chance to develop driving skills on loose surfaces on the frozen lakes of Sweden, while getting step by step instruction from Sandell, and using GPS technology.
Gray is also sponsored by 84 Lumber, Alpinestars, Metal Mulisha, Ogio, Verde Speed Resources, and Ignite Driven.
